it is stuck. Tried to tap the gauge and broke the glass. Now I want to know if I want to replace the speedo and glass could i just take the speedo out without the hole cluster as I have a another speedo in my parts car that's nice. And what the procedure not much room back there. Thanks Gary

PS Happy Holidays to all of you!!

Hello again. Thanks for the information on the distributor terminal insulator mine is fine.

I did check about fuel delivery. I have a inline fuel filter
from the tank going to the carburetor. It was old filled with
sediment from the tank really bad worst I have ever seen.
I just put a new one in.....

Could this have been my problem????

Ok Guys thank you so much for all the information. I am going to start small. I just replaced the coil with a aftermarket hotter coil I had with my parts and going to see what happens.
I warmed the car up and took it out for a ride here on the back roads seemed to be ok but this seems to come out of nowhere. Later today will take it on the highway. I do have a spare ignition switch. How do you switch where you put the key
in so it will work with my key? Thanks Again Gary

Engine Backfired blewout muffler & resonator

Hi Guys. Have not a clue on this one. Was having trouble with my 56 Packard 400 where I would be driving then all of a sudden a big jerk like the engine was skipping or missing almost like out of gas then would come back running good.
This happened enough where i was very concerned with safety driving my car.

I replaced points gaped at 16, new cap,rotor,condenser,put new wires in the distributor as the the cloth seemed frayed,checked timing 15 degrees, still have the issue when it gets warm. Also new spark plug wires. Today I drove it about 20 minutes to my destination no problem. Coming home it started to jerk again and then backfired and put a huge hole in my muffler and resonator on the drivers side.

I did check the the mechanical advance seems to work when I put higher the rpms.

Please I need help with this. Looking into getting my distributor rebuilt car has around 96,000 mile on it.

Thanks

Gary

Yes the carpet I purchased is factory correct from Neil
Porter and has no carpet under the front seat. Neil did a great job on mine and it was easy to install.
